How do I replace the cover photo with solid colour?

This article will show you how to fill your cover media section with colour.

If you don’t have any suitable images that you can use as a cover photo for your website, having a solid colour for this area is a viable alternative. Follow the instructions below to get started.

Please note: this article only applies to Version 9 of our Website Builder. If you’re not sure which version you have, you can find out by reading this article.

In addition to this, some of our Website Builder templates don’t come with a cover photo included.

Next, click one of the three colours within the Accent field to use it for your header background.

If, however, you’re not happy with this selection, you can pick a new range of colours by clicking Edit theme colour and selecting your colours from the Selecting Matching Colour or Select Custom Colour fields.
